Jake Gyllenhaal by malika-mango Jake Gyllenhaal by malika-mango
Well, here's my first digital portrait! It is of the fantastic actor, Jake Gyllenhaal. If you don't know him, and would like to, go rent one of his movies like Donnie Darko or look him up on IMDb.com :D

---

This was made entirely in Corel Painter Essentials 2 with a Wacom Intuos tablet. I freehand; no tracing was done.

It took me roughly around 19 hours to complete in the span of a few days.

JAKE=BEAUTIFUL. I am in love with this man. So HOTT. Okay done with teenage spaz.
Not that I doubt any of your capability, but I know that many people say that they make digital portraits w/ reference photos, but they really just smudge stuff around and add some effects...
I hope that you were honest in your art and it came from your own abilities, not from being cheap and lazy and trying to get credit from a photo.

Sorry if that sounded harsh, but a lot of people do that! :hug:

malika-mango Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2007
No need to worry, there was no smudging of the reference photo, or anything of the like. I did it completely on my own from scratch, and I'm very proud of that fact. My biggest pet peeve is people who are untruthful about their art/steal other people's art/etc. and I completely understand your being unsure if I did it honestly because there are (sadly) many people out there who don't.

Thank you for your concern, though! :hug:

Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. :) Yes, Jake is one good looking guy.

My next realistic portrait is of Dan as Harry Potter, which I'm excited about putting up once I finish (I've been working on it little by little since October-ish...). Maybe I'll put up a WIP.

I know, so do I! I'm totally obsessed. I have two Draco-based pictures in my gallery, but I'm actually surprised I don't have more HP art. I want to do realistic portraits of the trio. :D
